Now he's putting up a 1.78 with Greenville, he's a consistent goaltender that has some potential.

Because he's old. He'll turn 25 during the playoffs. The Bot was already a star AHL goalie at the same age and even he's a rare thing because he seems to be a very late bloomer due to the route he's taken via the unheralded Alabama program and the Jr. B Canadian hockey as a teenager.

Malcom's development curve has to be crazy high to make the NHL. I am higher on Stajcer than Malcolm because despite being over 2 years younger, he's already playing well in the AHL. He's shown a lot of improvement in the last 12 months, so I would count him as a legitimate prospect if he continues to progress.
